5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
Shai Hope, Avishka Fernando, Kusal Mendis, Sheldon Cottrell, and Wanindu Hasaranga.
Dream XI Wicket-Keepers
Shai Hope (Price 10) and Kusal Perera (Price 9) will be the keepers of our squad. Shai Hope has been the only bright light for the Windies team and he is in a brilliant form. Perera has also been decent in the series and will be a good pick.
Dream XI Batsmen
The batting trio of Kusal Mendis (Price 10), Avishka Fernando (Price 8.5), and Dimuth Karunaratne (Price 9.5) will be our batters from Sri Lanka. Avishka and Mendis scored a century in the last game and in absolutely top form, they just cannot be dropped from the team. Karunratne has been in decent form and will also be a good pick in the squad.
Darren Bravo (Price 9) will be our lone batter from the Windies. Bravo has not been in top-notch form but he is a decent batsman and is picked by the majority of the people, so it will be a safer option in the small-league teams.
Dream XI All-Rounders
Roston Chase (Price 8.5) and Thisara Perera (Price 9.5) will be the all-rounders in our team. Chase will be supported by the pitch in his spin bowling and will be a decent batter at number 4. Perera has been very good in the series and would like to make an impact again.
Dream XI Bowlers
Sheldon Cottrell (Price 9) and Alzari Joseph (Price 8.5) will be our bowlers from West Indies. Both Cottrell and Joseph have been in brilliant wicket-taking form and taking wickets for fun. These both have to be part of the team.
Wanindu Hasaranga (Price 8) has been in absolute top-form and it will be a crime to remove him from the squad. He is taking wickets and also scoring runs for the team. He will be an absolutely sure pick.
Sri Lanka will be the favourites to win this game.
